. this is the map of san francisco's priority development areas, also on page 59. i won't go into it in too much detail unless you have questions. the framework in 38 million, 3.5 million is planning activities of funds every cycle, congestion management. generally over sight of fubd funded projects, county transportation and regional transportation and lots of thesering activities. next portion we see here, 24.6 million, that minimum we have to spend in the priority development areas. we created the next line down. this school is an eligible project. eligible projects within this program. and we created this target to really identify the school infrastructure projects in the city. there will be another round of funding and another call in winter, january of 2013 where we will be focused on the education outreach portion of this school program. the final piece is remaining balance, funds we can spend outside the area. >> the funds you are articulating in buckets, are those written in stone or asked to approve? >> that is that we are asked to approve. the piece in stone from mtc is 70

a proportionate allocation of revenues, it doesn't express priority in terms of the timing of revenues as they come in. this is a long-term plan, a 20 to 25 years we estimate until these revenues will come in over time. these revenues include the new open space sea created for the plan which we estimate and the funding plan say it will raise $47 million over the plan area. of that $47 million the fund allocates 12-1/2 million dollars outside of the area which $9 million will be used to fund open space improvementses in the chinatown neighborhood, which is one of the densest neighbors in the city adjacent to the downtown. and as such, growth in the plan area will have impacts on the need for additional open space in chinatown. there was a request at the joint hearing at parks and rec meeting we calendar this item to consider adding additional language to the implementation document to express priority for early investment from early impact fee revenues be directed towards open space improvementses in chinatown. as we are very timely. so, we put together this in draft lapping wa

place so that the filter allows emergencies to be addressed appropriately, priorities to be resourced appropriately, and the routine to be put into something so that everyone is aware of it and if it becomes, it changes to one of the other categories it can be addressed. and, last, we talked about how to share that information not only amongst ourselves within that particular command goes, but across the city, outside of the city up to the state and further if resource shortfalls do occur. we talked about a mapping process but more importantly than just that process, really the -- go back to my first point -- is the intent. if we start with a plan that explains what the priorities are, everybody is focused on those priorities. so if the map shows those critical pathways that have to be opened, which i saw yesterday during the medical exercise, the medical community knows what those routes are, they know which one have to be opened in order for citizens to get to those critical places. once that's posted up in the coc, we're all focused on that priority. identifying where those challen

] priority the rest will stand [speaker not understood]. i think that is a reasonable comment which came to me. and that's the reason why i'm asking the question. >> commissioner antonini. >> well, thank you. and, of course, as was pointed out by director ram, the lion's share of the $47 million in open space, 34.5 million is going to be spent in the plan area. and we're looking at the 12.5 million and i think we had earmarked 9 million of that for chinatown and 3.5 million elsewhere, if i'm reading it correctly. and, i mean, he i think the impact is probably heaviest obviously in the plan area itself where you're creating the most impact by having the development there, and you need the open space to complement that. and then, you know, you have to kind of decide where the impact, next impact is the greatest and that was the decision that was made and that's what's before us and it sound reasonable to me. you can also conjecture about relative impacts here and there, but it seems to be a reasonable position to take. and i'm fine with it, especially the prioritizing of the first of the moni

working on parks. so in the environment i need to tell everyone, that muni is a priority, without muni the city will come to a stand still and it is not working properly right now. other cities can do transit systems even with snow and terrible weather, and san francisco can't. we need to fix it. i've worked in the green jobs area. i have helped push through go solar sf, which has created hundreds of jobs in san francisco and i need to do more of that for the citizens of san francisco. i will close with the idea that san francisco and district five in particular need a hard-working supervisor who has a stable background and a proven track record of making hard decision and getting things done. and i'm that person. >> hi, my name is thea starby and i am asking you to make me your next district five supervisor. as a long time neighborhood activist, i am able to speak and more importantly listen to people from all walks of life and all, professions. >> i have gotten these groups to talk and listen to each other. i have got involved in politics after 2007 double homicide across the st

that are developed by metro strategy, mta, capital plan, the tep. these priorities are drawn into and considered in the san francisco transportation plan and then sftp informs the updates to those plans. for instance, the planning department will update the general plan transportation element after the adoption of the sftp next spring. the climate action plan, for instance, was developed in collaboration between the city and the transportation authority as part of our needs assessment or future needs assessment, what it will take to achieve. our gas and reduction goals. so, the region is very dependent on san francisco to address a significant part of the region's growth and transportation challenge. so, we need to determine how to manage these 400,000 plus new daily auto trips. we know that there is not much low-hanging fruit. everything involves a trade-off. and that we need to do things differently to meet this challenge. we know that also that a lot of the growth in san francisco is going to happen in the city's core, the soma, the mission bay, and new auto trends in neighborh

francisco, san francisco priorities. all of these projects received a commitment of some of the regions discretionary funds to be funded between now and 2040. the third highlight --0 there was a new program, nu funding program created during the lesson strategy process known as the one bay area block grant. first under the region has tied transportation investment dollars to land-use, and would local jurisdictions have been doing in terms of planning for growth. while in the past transportation funding is often distributed based on a population-based approach, but other factors such as how successful counties have been in planning for and building new affordable housing is considered in how much funding a jurisdiction receive. also how large the rena allocation is and how much of that is a below market rate is also considered in the distribution formula. this is something that we have asked the region to do for quite some time to tie vision to resources; it is not perfect but it is a great step in the right direction and we are excited about this program. finally based on a lot of advoc

submissions, priorities from all of our partner agencies, all of our agencies that operator provide services [speaker not understood] in san francisco as well as from the public. and a lot of what the public is calling for is that we call programmatic types of investments, traffic calming, pedestrian safety, improved bicycle safety rather than major capital projects although there were requests for those, too. as far as the major capital investments go, san francisco has done a great job establishing our priorities as regional priorities. so, this process has been conducted in parallel with the regional project evaluation process. and mtc, the metropolitan transportation commission, adopted projects performance evaluation findings last year. and san francisco project 5 was the top 10. so, we have our priorities in place at the regional level and now we -- our challenge is to deliver them. i point out, for instance, caltrain.

the county level san francisco transportation plan. we had to identify the priorities for the city. the ideas that you mentioned are not quite at that stage; hold your thought in your question until my colleague present the san francisco transportation plan. >> i may have jumped ahead little bit, not looking at the advance agenda. >> mission commissioner -- >> back on the housing goal, 28,000 for the next decade, 67% below market or affordable, you mention how we achieve the annual goals, -is that compared to what we did over the last 10 years? are we close to that number? >> that is an excellent question. it gets back to the way that we interpret the original housing needs allocation. it has for -- most of its history been a requirement zone, the intention is to prevent smaller, wealthier jurisdiction to create exclusionary zoning, preventing multiunit buildings being developed in there. by those exclusionary zoning practices there for pushing population out into potentially lower income areas, and so the regional housing needs allocation is a requirement to zone for all of these.

elsbernd: what do you mean defend it? as a priority because we are focused on long-term funding. >> vice president elsbernd: i guess i was thinking there's more money available for this kind of capital work than looking at the operating pot of money. >> not a lot there. >> vice president elsbernd: so that would be my one concern. i agree with the theory. supervisor farrell is right on that. if the end game is to maintain better characterize it as capital. >> for us as well i think in terms of staff work, having the different departments come to us to talk about their maintenance on a regular basis makes our jobs easier in terms of looking at the larger issues of renewals and replacements of things. having that dialogue is useful to us just process-wise. >> vice president elsbernd: out of curiosity to the grand jury was that argument presented to you? now that you're hearing this your end game is not to be specific about characterizing money your end game is to maintain the art. do you agree that to best maintain the art we should forget about the term of art operating in capital

the already obtained $500,000 from the [speaker not understood] commission for priority development area planning to a local match of 245,000. we now have essentially a very substantial amount of funding to allow us to take the first steps implementing the comprehensive package for treasure island transportation, which is bus, cycling and parking enhancements that in part is going to be funded by pricing revenues in that area. we're very excited about that and we continue to work with the mayor's office and the authority, with the authority as the transportation manager agency for the island. i expect a report on that at a future meeting. same with the caltrans planning grant. i think the key projects we got funded are the hills neighborhood transportation plan which is going to address the south side of the hills, it will be nicely with existing [speaker not understood] and reconnections efforts. and will kickoff in early 2013. and we also have a $300,000 grant for the geneva harney bus rapid transit analysis, which is again a long-term effort that we've had in that area of town, p

staff general ray odierno. sir, one of your priority efforts is to redesign the brigade combat teams. why is that so necessary, and what are we going to see come out of that process? >> well what we've learned is, in terms of brigade combat team, we need it to be agile and flexible enough to operate across a broad spectrum of missions. we've done a significant amount of analysis both technical analysis, tactical analysis, to come up with a new design. so the one thing that's absolutely essential is we must have a third ma niewfer battalion -- a third maneuver battalion. we didn't have enough engineers. we have to relook how we do our intelligence collection and provide fire support. so all of those are going to be incorporated in the new brigade design when it comes out. we've just about completed. we're about ready to go forward. you should be seeing an announcement in the next several months. >> you have been working to define your long-range monetization program obviously in a more fiscally austere environment. if you were going to designate your top three programs what would thos

think that those two priorities should be funded the same. >> thank you. >> i would add to that, that we can't just point out that the present system is costing us $9 billion or more than higher ed. but we have to be willing to reform the system and to find ways to save costs. and when you look at an example of the initiative that is three strikes and you are out. that could save a tremendous amount of money. $47,000 a year to keep someone in prison rather than what we are spending on year for education whereas someone is educated and having a job there they are not going to go to jail, it is very unlikely. so i would say that there might be something like determinive sentencing which would allow someone who is drug addiction and you could provide the judge with the discretion to actually have them in treatment rather than costing the tax payers thousands of dollars. so we have to save the seniors the services that they need and we have to be willing to make hard reform. >> now we come to the candidate' closing statements if you are not registered to vote, please do so right away and urg

understand what the priorities are so the first thing we need is an orientation. not just a map orientation, although that's very helpful, we're not that familiar with san francisco, where the hospitals are, where the priority routes are, but we also need a quick orientation what the priorities are. where is the focus of effort so we can orient ourselves and our capabilities towards that. second thing we need is to understand the intent. what is the priority, where are they and that also keys us to what capabilities we might be able to focus on. of course the third thing we need to know what the resource shortfalls are. that will allow us to determine what kinds of equipment we need to put towards that. but what i saw in the exercise was a good information flow and an atmosphere of a team effort at the location at ocean beach. >> thank you. thank you, all. when we have an vent in the future and we know it's going to happen, we just don't know when, i sometimes tell my team we're one day closer to the next disaster. i don't know when it's going to be, but we're one day closer. when that happ
